Following his fall-out with Erik ten Hag, Jadon Sancho has been 'completely exiled' from the Manchester United first team and his time at the club looks to be coming to an end. As the January transfer window approaches, numerous reports have been emerging regarding the England international's potential exit next year.

United signed Sancho from Borussia Dortmund in 2021 for £73 million, following his blistering form in the Bundesliga. He contributed 16 goals and 20 assists during his final season in Germany, before making the move to Old Trafford.

Ten Hag and co are aware that they will struggle to recoup the money they spent on him so they are now exploring different options to get him off their books. According to SPORT, the boss is 'fed up' with Sancho and have asked the club to move him on, and talks have been held with Barcelona.

The report claims that United have pitched the idea of a swap deal with Barca, involving Sancho and Raphinha. The latter has been on several clubs' radars lately and the decision makers at the club will discuss this new proposal.

Raphinha was snapped up last summer after making waves at Leeds United. Barcelona splashed £55 million on the transfer, but he has been linked to a return to the Premier League in recent weeks.

During his time at Elland Road, he commanded a lot of attention from fans, rivals clubs and his teammates alike. Daniel James described him as a 'magician' who 'can do absolutely anything on the pitch' during an interview with FIFA in 2021.

The SPORT report has also claimed Sancho 'did not receive the salary he should have received on November 1st' but United have reportedly taken the stance of if he does not play or train with the first team, then 'he doesn't get paid'.
